Livestock-wildlife interactions promote the transmission of a wide range of infectious diseases that constraint livestock production. We used a participatory appraisal approach to find out and rank infectious diseases of concern to pastoralists in a zone of intense wildlife-livestock interaction and another zone with limited interactions. Four villages were selected purposively in areas with intensive cattle-wildlife interactions (zone 1), and another two in areas with low to moderate cattle-wildlife interactions (zone 2).

Compulsory acquisition is power of the State to deprive or acquire any title or other interest in land for a public purpose subject to prompt payment of compensation (Land Act,2012).This project explored how geospatial technology can be used to assemble, manage and disseminate information required in the process of compulsory land acquisition. This involved use of Web GIS for creation of a web-based database application; this would assist in making the land acquisition process more effective, efficient and transparent.

The magnitude and trend of temperature and rainfall extremes as indicators of climate variability and change were investigated in the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) of Kenya using in-situ measurements and gridded climate proxy datasets, and analysed using the Gaussian-Kernel analysis and the Mann-Kendall statistics. The results show that the maximum and minimum temperatures have been increasing, with warmer temperatures being experienced mostly at night time.

The Thika Superhighway is perhaps the most massive infrastructural project in the East African region, save for perhaps the standard gauge railway (SGR) project. It was anticipated by the business community, leading to the change of use of land along it, manifested in the development of malls and housing estates. This land use change is continuing despite the road having been completed in February of the year 2012. The road was built with the aim of easing the traffic congestion problem, but traffic congestion persists.
